Contraband Alcohol is a Killer!

In one of our articles, we told the tale of a massacre caused by counterfeit alcohol in India, with more than 150 deaths. In the very popular tourist destination of the Dominican Republic, a series of tragic deaths among American tourists has raised the alarm at the FBI. Although counterfeit alcohol is very often the cheap, but very risky, expedient of the broke alcoholic, when it strikes well-to-do-tourists partaking of a glass or two in the hotels or bars of this small Caribbean paradise, contraband alcohol becomes a dangerous serial killer.

A corked wine detector is already in existence; it would certainly be a good idea to have a reliable device to guarantee the integrity of branded alcoholic drinks at our disposal as quickly as possible … and that’s not just a matter of taste!
